[OpenStack Foundation] establishing channel for optional feedback re: pilot projects

Jonathan, is the intention to have the TSC weigh in on every Pilot project as a point of process, or rather to have a mechanism for them to provide the OSF staff supporting the project direct feedback where the TSC has observed the work product of the project itself (code, wiki, website, summit presentations etc.)? 

Given the TSC does not govern these projects, the former might not make sense.

This specific request is to the TC as the process allows for official input from other confirmed projects’ governance bodies when a new project is being considered for confirmation. This could be anything from a simple email to me and Alan, a formal resolution from the TC, or even a decision to not have an opinion. Since we’re just setting up this process, I was hoping to hear how the TC would like to be involved so we can make that part of the workflow for each of the projects that come up.

At this point, that could include Kata Containers and Zuul, although we are just starting to work with the projects on their portion of the confirmation process. I think if the TC wishes to provide feedback on either of those projects, it would be ideal to have it ahead of the April 8th meeting.

Can you give us an idea of what format that review meeting will take? Is the team going to put together a slide deck, for example? Having whatever materials they will be presenting available for the TC to review seems like a good start, although I don't know whether that's possible given the current schedule.

What sorts of input would the board be interested in hearing? Are there specific questions, or is it more a matter of looking for general comments?
